The Basics

Queen Victoria was born on the 24th of May 1819.

When she was baptised, her full name was in fact Alexandrina Victoria.

Her father was Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn.

Her mother was Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld.

Victoria inherited the throne on the 20th of June 1837, although her coronation took place a year later on the 28th of June, 1838.

She married Prince Albert on the 10th of February 1840.

The couple had nine children together, the first being Victoria, born on the 21st of November 1840, the last Beatrice, born on the 14th of April 1857.

All of her children married into European royal families; this led to Victoria becoming known as the ‘grandmother of Europe’.

Queen Victoria died on the 22nd of January 1901.

Her reign, known as the Victorian era, had lasted 63 years and seven months - the longest of any British monarch (although Queen Elizabeth II will surpass this on the 10th of September 2015).
